When we first heard about the Brilliance BS6 in mid-2007, we saw it spectacularly collapse in on itself as it was crashed into a barrier for a European test. Subsequently the Chinese automaker upgraded the structure and did somewhat better in a repeat test. Since then, Brilliance has continued working on the BS6 and is planning to reveal a hybrid version later this month at the Guangzhou auto show. China Car Times reports it will have a nickel hydrogen battery although that's probably a translation error. The engine is a 1.8L turbocharged unit and the hybrid system is claimed to give a 35 percent improvement in efficiency.
